ISG Provider Lens™ report sees growing demand for data engineering services and cloud integration

FRANKFURT, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Enterprises in Germany increasingly seek to gather and analyze data from varied sources, but many don’t have the resources and experience to implement a holistic data management strategy, according to a new report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq:III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ Analytics – Solutions and Service Partners Report for Germany finds companies in the country turning to providers of data analytics solutions and services to fill the gap.

“In uncertain times, especially, businesses need to base their decisions on solid evidence,” said Andrea Spiegelhoff, ISG EMEA partner based in Germany. “Data analytics services are crucial for building resilient businesses that are ready for the future.”

The report notes that German manufacturing and logistics were hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, with many digitization initiatives put on hold. Data analytics projects were an exception to this trend, however.

Demand for services in the areas of data science, data engineering, cloud integration for analytics and data lifecycle management are increasing. However, the report notes the growth of the data science industry is limited by a skills shortage in Germany. Enterprises and service providers are retraining their own in-house employees to add data analytics skills. In addition, new automated tools, such as Google Cloud Smart Analytics, will start to compete with traditional data science services.

Data engineering services, meanwhile, make up the bulk of data analytics activities by companies in Germany, the report finds. The demand for data engineering services is increasing as the number of decentralized data sources grows. Companies are building data lakes to capture data from the network edge and other sources.

The demand for cloud integration of data analytics infrastructure environments is also growing, the report adds. As more businesses shift to digital operations, the cloud has become the inevitable choice for investment in data analytics infrastructure.

Demand for data lifecycle management expertise is growing as well, the report says. The sheer volume of data being collected by businesses creates continuous operational challenges in governance and general data management.

The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ Analytics – Solutions and Service Partners Report for Germany evaluates the capabilities of 75 providers across six quadrants: Data Science Services, Data Engineering Services, Data Infrastructure and Cloud Integration Services, Data Lifecyle Management Services, Self-Service Analytics and BI Platforms As-a-Service, and Analytics Reporting Solutions.

The report names Accenture, Atos, Capgemini, DXC Technology and IBM as leaders in four quadrants and Alexander Thamm and Cognizant as leaders in three. *um (Orange Business Services), Deloitte, NTT DATA, PwC, SAP, Tableau, Tech Mahindra and TIBCO are named as leaders in two quadrants, and Bosch, Cubeware, datapine, Empolis, eoda, infomotion, Infosys, Microsoft, PTC, Qlik, SAS, Splunk and STATSWORX are named as leaders in one.

In addition, Data Insights, HCL, Infosys and Reply were named Rising Stars—companies with “promising portfolios” and “high future potential” by ISG’s definition—in one quadrant each.
